Election Time In Back County

by Michael Hart

November 3rd is election day and not just on a national level. School districts, Community Service Districts and the Julian Planning Group all should be filling seats... We say should be... because not enough people have signed up to run for the available seats, some will automatically be “elected” while other seats will have to be appointed. We also have to fill the 50th congressional seat in the House of Representatives. AMMAR CAMPA-NAJJAR vs DARRELL ISSA. State Assembly - 71st District race featuring RANDY VOEPEL and ELIZABETH LAVERTU. A new person for the County Board of Supervisors, District 2 - JOEL ANDERSON or Poway Mayor STEVE VAUS. Purely Julian elections include; Julian Elementary School District with three seats available and only two candidates - KEVIN MEACHAM and Danielle WOODWARD. Julian High School District; two “full term” seats - MEREDITH BROOKS as the only candidate and one “short term seat with RANDA LAKE as the lone person running. Spencer Valley School District - CAROL FRAUSTO is running unopposed. The Julian Community Planning Area(Group) has six openings with five all seeking reelection; FRANKLIN “WOODY” BARNES, ERIC JONES, KEITH KRAWIEK, REBECCA MORALES and KIKI SKAGEN-MUNSHI. The Majestic Pines Water Company has three running for the three available - KURT BOETTCHER, GARY DARNELL, and ROBERT MARKART. Wynola Water District with two seats and two candidates - JOHN LOFGREEN and TIM TASCHLER. The Julian Community Services District has zero candidates for three seats. Cuyamaca Water District has no candidates who have filed for two seats. The Schools will have to advertise and vote on candidates at their board meetings before filling vacancies. For the planning group and the water districts they will need to find appropriate candidates submit them to the County and then an appointment to each elective office will be made by the Board of Supervisors as prescribed in section 10515 of the Election Code. If you are interested in filling any of the available seats, you need to contact the district or group that you want to apply for and verify your eligibility. As an example to apply for any of the water districts you must reside within that district. Over in Warner Springs Unified School District there are three board positions available and six candidates on who have filed to run. CALOLYN ALTOAUDIBERT, TERRY COX, GENE DOXEY, BYRON KLEMASKE II, MELISSA KROUGH, MELODY SEES. This is not unfamiliar territory for any Julian election. It is hoped that qualified individuals will come forward in the coming weeks to serve the community in these vital areas. It what our representative democracy is all about.

Be proud Julian, because our kids were ready and eager to learn the moment they came back to the classroom! Yes, I said “classroom.” Our teachers have created online classrooms that help students get back to learning, and socializing, even during these difficult times! Students are

If you ask a teacher, they will tell you how much they miss their students. That they wish they could greet each student face-to-face to give them encouragement and to watch the realization of a new idea dawn on their faces! Teachers want the kind of classrooms that are loud with discussion groups and messy with supplies that have been over-used. Until that day comes, students and teachers have shown their determination to make a classroom come alive

Women’s Rights Pioneers Honoured - Finally The first statue of real women in Central Park’s 167-year history. The Park has statues of Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose, Juliet with Romeo, witches, nymphs, and angels – but no real women…until now. Our monument of Women’s Rights Pioneers Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton will be unveiled on August 26, 2020, the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th “Votes For Women” amendment to the constitution. 2020 is also the 200th anniversary of the birth of Susan B. Anthony. All three women were not only Women’s Rights Pioneers, but New Yorkers as well. The statue’s strategic location in the heart of Central Park, within walking distance of many museums and tourist attractions, will ensure that many of Central Park’s 42 million annual visitors become more aware of women’s contributions to our shared history. Monumental Women has the further goals of increasing awareness and appreciation of Women’s History through a nationwide education campaign and challenging municipalities across the country to rethink the past and reshape the future by including tributes in their public spaces to the diverse women who helped create and inspire those cities. Artist’s Statement from Meredith Bergmann As an artist working in the public realm, I approach this project with an eye on integrating four compatible but different concerns: the people and history to be commemorated, the site, our contemporary needs, and my own interest in creating the artwork. My own interest is the easiest to describe: I have worked for decades for social justice and historical redress through my art, using my artist’s imagination to create empathic representations of diverse, inspiring people. The historical record is complex, as are the people I’m portraying. Professor Margaret

Julian Students Rise To The Challenge!


August 26, 2020

Meredith Bergmann’s statue to be cast in bronze and placed in New York’s Central Park, the first statue of “real” women to be placed in the park. Washington, historian and author of Sojourner Truth’s America, (University of Illinois Press, IL, 2011) summarized the complexity beautifully when she wrote to me: “There ought to be a way to depict that; to capture the sisterhood as well as differences.” Central Park is visited by over 42 million people each year. I’ve used some of the vocabulary of the existing statuary near our site on Literary Walk so that this monument will speak to and harmoniously coexist with the Park’s art collection. In this design, as throughout the Park, recognizable bronze figures sit and stand on a granite pedestal with inscriptions. Within this structure, my design also departs from the other monuments in ways that are appropriate to the entry of women into a sphere from which they were previously excluded. Three figures (instead of one) share a pedestal and relate to each other. They are not dreaming, but working. They

are an allegory of sisterhood, cooperation and activism but they are not just an allegory, as so many sculptures of women are. In this way I am making a contemporary work that will, as required, harmonize with its 19th Century surroundings. This requires not just research but imagination. Nick Capasso, as curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, has written: “As a contemporary artist, Meredith Bergmann relies on her knowledge of history and art history, as well as her considerable talent as a figurative sculptor, to forge enriching links between the past and the concerns of the present. Her success as a creator of public art stems from her ability to make free, imaginative use of the forms and symbols of traditional sculpture to address, in complex yet accessible ways, the multi-layered personal and societal concerns of modern life.”

Recycle The Right Way Recycle Right: The County of San Diego and I Love A Clean San Diego Offer New Tips and Resources to Make Recycling Easy Recycle Right by getting “Back to Basics,” and Refuse, Reuse and Recycle the right material to help ensure what goes in the blue bin gets remade into new products. and the County of San Diego’s new Recycle Right webpage are countywide resources for all residents. Most people want to do the right thing when it comes to recycling, but confusing messages make it difficult to remember the basics. The recycling system throughout San Diego County only works if everyone does their part to keep the right materials in the blue bin and the wrong ones out. Residents make decisions every day when faced with a greasy pizza box, a dirty take-out container or a used single-use coffee cup from a favorite coffee roaster. In hope or haste, we dispose of these items, but do we collectively Recycle Right and what are the consequences of not doing so? Californians generate an average of six pounds of waste per person, per day. Therefore, recycling plays a vital role in helping us reduce our waste, conserve our limited resources and support the production of the raw materials manufacturers want and need. If all the waste generated in San Diego County was deposited in SDCCU Stadium in Mission Valley, it would take less than three weeks to fill up and it would fill 18 more times each year. Therefore, making the best decision now helps in the long run. By following these simple steps, recycling should become less confusing, more efficient and ensure valuable recyclables stay out of the landfill. RECYCLING RIGHT means accepted materials are: • Empty – No or very little food residue remaining • Dry – No liquids left. Liquids can ruin paper, cardboard and other materials in the recycle bin making them unrecyclable. • Loose – DO NOT bag recyclables. Doing so clogs the sorting equipment at the Material Recovery Facility where the contents of recycling bins go to be processed. Place accepted materials in your blue bin loose. Recycling Right cuts down on contamination. Contamination is anything that doesn’t belong in the blue recycle bin such as plastic bags, batteries, clothing, cords, hoses, electronics, food, liquids, napkins and paper towels, straws, plastic utensils and more. Many of those items may be recyclable, but not in the blue bins. Eric Wolff, Program Coordinator for Solid Waste Planning and Recycling at the County of San Diego, says, “There’s a big push to reduce contamination in the recycling bin since 20 percent or more of what some residents and businesses currently put in the recycle bin is actually not recyclable. Stopping contamination starts with consumers.” “Residents want to recycle,” Wolff adds. “They put items they’re not sure about in the recycle bin, hoping it’s recyclable. That’s called wishcycling, and actually causes more harm than good. That’s why we’re going back to basics.” BACK TO BASICS means placing only accepted materials in the blue bin. Throughout the San Diego region, with a few minor exceptions, the four main groups of recyclable items are: • Paper, cardboard and cartons • Plastic bottles and containers • Glass bottles and jars • Metal and aluminum cans and foil Kick contaminants to the curb! Workers and sorting equipment at the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) are not able to separate out all materials that don’t belong from recyclables. Residents throughout the county can help by cutting out wasteful single-use items and switching to durable, reusable materials instead. To learn more about how to Recycling Right visit the County of San Diego’s Recycle Right webpage and check out WasteFreeSD. org, a countywide resource for information on recycling, reuse, repair and hazardous waste disposal. Looking forward San Diego County diverts about 61 percent of its waste. California has set a goal to reduce landfill disposal by 75 percent. A study by CalRecycle found that the majority of material brought to landfills could have been recycled or composted. How we think about waste in San Diego County needs a change, and it starts with Recycling Right.

Our contemporary needs are not simple either. We need statues of real women in Central Park. We need to be true to our new understanding of the historical record which does not shrink from calling out injustice and oppression, or minimize the contributions of people of color or the harms done to people of color. We need to correct the injustice done to women of all races and their invisibility in public spaces. We need to commemorate an important landmark in the so-far-endless struggle for justice in America without forgetting that had America been true to its founding principles, movements for equal rights would never have been necessary. None of the women depicted on the monument lived to see the ratification of the 19th Amendment, let alone the Voting Rights Act of 1965, whose work is still incomplete. But as we struggle towards greater justice, we need and deserve a monument commemorating some of the important work that

has come before us. Sojourner Truth is speaking, Susan B. Anthony is organizing, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton is writing, three essential elements of activism. Truth sits with Stanton at a small table, perhaps on the occasion of a conference for the abolition of slavery or for women’s rights or for both, as these movements were, for much of their history, joined in activism. Anthony is standing behind the table with her traveling bag, bringing documentation of injustices to help focus the discussion. The women might be meeting in Stanton’s home, where both Sojourner Truth and Susan B. Anthony were guests. The monument represents an indoor space because much of women’s political work originated in the home– in the 19thCentury women were not commonly seen in the public sphere. Statues serve many purposes in addition to portraying a likeness of a person, and the best portraits evoke a whole life continued on page 11 ESTABLISHED

Imagination Library Of Julian Books For Kids

Due to current circumstances, this year’s Summer Learning Program will be completely virtual. There will be no physical prizes but you can explore our new program and earn badges. June 22 through August 31, 2020.

Dolly Parton started a childhood literacy foundation twenty-five years ago in her home Tennessee county. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library book gifting program mails free high-quality books to every enrolled child every month in a service area, starting at birth and continuing through the 5th birthday. Today, that program has expanded to five countries, and mails out free books to 1.4 million kids each month. (By the way... this note ends with a personal appeal for you to make a sponsorship donation!). The books are carefully selected to grow with the child. Parents bond with children by reading together. Kids grow up with a love for books and become lifelong readers. Remember a time before the mail was just bills and junk mail? Imagine the joy of being four years old again and getting a new book in the mail, addressed to you! The single-child sponsorship is only $25 per year -- just $2.10 per month for books mailed (through USPS) directly to the child's home. It's an amazing value. Friends of the Julian Library (FOJL) has joined with a group of Community Committee volunteers and Julian Pathways, Inc. to get an affiliate started in the Julian area. We are leaders from each of the three Julian-area elementary schools, educators, librarians, and Julian residents passionate about giving children a head start on building literacy. We're putting in place the necessary organization to service Juilan and the surrounding area codes: 92036, 92060, 92066, 92070 and 92086. Today we are welcoming sponsors and doing the work to enroll every Julian preschool child. Every dollar is raised and spent in the community. If you would like to sponsor one child -- or twenty -- please make a pledge. Consider if you'd like to make a one time sponsorship, or set up a recurring monthly donation. Checks can be mailed to Julian Pathways, P.O. Box 337, Julian CA 92036. Bank cards can be processed over the phone with Pathways 760.765.2228. PayPal: or Venmo @Julian-Pathways Personally, I hope we create life-long readers and new library patrons! Thank you.

Worship and workouts: The Board of Supervisors recently approved my proposal to open up our county parks to worship services and fitness-related businesses. We streamlined the permit process and are waiving fees related to reserving park space. This is not a new idea. Poway pioneered it with its recent SOS initiative, proposed by Mayor Steve Vaus. East County locations with reservable space include Lindo Lake, Hilton Head, Pine Valley, Louis Stelzer, Potrero and Spring Valley parks. More information at Stepping up in a crisis: I'm pleased to report that the board has set aside $11.8 million in federal funds to expand our Great Plates program, an initiative that is helping seniors AND our troubled restaurant industry. Great Plates delivers meals from local restaurants to older residents in need. The funding allows us to triple the number of people served, and the program was expanded to include those with disabilities. With COVID, food delivery has become critical. Many seniors live alone and lack the resources to meet basic needs. At the same time, our restaurants are hurting and need whatever help we can give them. The county has also added $3.5 million in financial assistance to restaurants across the region as part of our economic stimulus program. Helping the helpers: Childcare providers offering essential services during the pandemic can apply for grants, thanks to $25 million in federal CARES Act funding being distributed with the approval of the board. Eligible providers can apply for support for staffing, supplies, mortgage and rental assistance, business resilience and capital improvements for outdoor areas. The application window is Aug. 24 to Sept. 4. For details, go to In the Zone: Just a reminder that the county’s Cool Zone program is up and running again, but on a limited basis due to COVID-19.

The way we celebrate these days has changed. But one thing hasn’t. Though mylar balloons seem harmless, they can actually be dangerous around electric power lines. The metal in the balloons can cause the line to arc and spark. So keep balloons securely tied down or weighted when outdoors. Always deflate and dispose of them when the party’s over. And when we all return to our normal celebrations, think about using festive rubber or vinyl balloons instead.

Back Country Happenings What Is A "Long-Haul" Covid-19 Patient? What is a "Long-Haul" Lyme Patient?

Chris Christianson

from Michael Judson-Carr

Lately we hear about "Long-Haul" COVID-19 patients, those with many lasting and "persistent" effects after surviving the Pandemic. Those of us who have learned to live with Tick Borne infections over many years have great sympathy for our fellow ill patients. We have had to find our own way through the puzzling "maze" of a medical system not prepared for our debilitating infection, not educated about what it is, and without funding to assist us. We can be the young, (the children misdiagnosed for years) as well as the adults who cannot figure out why they have crushing fatigue (when they should be bursting with stamina). We can be old, fatigued elders like me - who have been forced to be our own "pathfinders". Did You Know? ... Our long time symptoms so closely parallel those of COVID-19 recent survivors suffering from lingering effects, we might as well be substitutes for each other at the local clinic. Is the medical profession ready to assist the "massive" number of those recovering from this viral pandemic - once a vaccine or effective treatment is developed? If you want to look at the future ... please take a look at the past. Please be prepared for a "Long-Haul" if you survive a viral pandemic infection. Awareness is power. Action is resolve created from awareness. Please think ahead, just for a minute, about our "new" health care situation after this is all over. How will we care for the new "disabled"?

Chris Christianson passed away on August 15, 2020. He was a 25year resident of Julian. Chris loved the town and his many friends. He enjoyed his years portraying many roles in the Julian melodramas. He was known all over town to burst into song frequently. He had previously lived in Riverside County for 40 years and had a career with the Riverside Press Enterprise Newspaper spanning 26 years. Chris was also a 51-year proud member of AA. Chris is survived by his sister, Carol, two nieces, Pam and Kristi, great-niece Amanda, all of whom were close to him all of his life. Also, he has many nieces, nephews, cousins and good friends scattered far and wide. There will be a graveside ceremony at the Haven of Rest Cemetery in Julian on August 29 at 10:30 AM. Anyone wishing to attend will need to observe COVID19 safety precautions such as wearing masks and physical distancing.

Fires, Black-Outs, And Stale Beer...


A Canuck Sports Fan laments on life in Covid California in this politically incorrect and irreverent fantasy.

No masks, no distance - when the whistle is blown politicians will grapple, on the ground, 'til they're thrown for a loss, or a gain, we'll see who remains after four quarters at the end of the game! Let's have a scrimmage with the Donald & Joe Kamala and Mike, Nancy and foes... fake left, but pass right - set up your plays but only 3 downs - the Canadian way! Post office shuffle - filibuster plenty "OMAHA! OMAHA!" he's off to the 20! Time out - to "chill out" the kicker you see he misses the field goal ... now, where are we? On the field is chaos, the clock has run out no fans on the field - there's Covid about! Declare it a tie? Send to overtime? My phone just ran out ... so have my rhymes. Lions, and Tigers ... we're all so uptight if you're not in "lock-down", can you turn out the light? This song is one minute - don't jump and shout I would have sung longer but the power went out! *Author's note: Some years ago I had the great privilege of being a part-time clubhouse bartender for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League and the Calgary Flames of the NHL. My time with both teams was a joy, and I have great indelible and irreplaceable memories of players past and present, coaches, and fans laughing at my "weird" jokes. They knew me as "Grandpa" or "Uncle" Michael - their bartender. Today I got the news of the CFL cancelling their 2020 season. When you live in Canada - sports is what sees you through the long dreary winter. I wrote this "satire" for them. Only politics seems to survive these hard times.

It’s Never Too Early for Evacuation Planning

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Water ... Please! The weather is unspeakable, apples are ripening, more people are coming up from down the hill and it’s time for the annual water rant. Newcomers to our area do notice that we don’t live in the city. We know that. What they often don’t notice, however, is that this means they need to change their city ways. Back in the day this was obvious but now modern technology deceives us into thinking that only the landscape is different, everything else can remain the same. We do, afer all, have electricity and when we turn on the tap clear water (unless you are very unlucky) gushes forth. Well, it’s not the same and it’s not even the same as some other places in the Back County. Water is front and center in this difference. Unlike Borrego, which sits on a vast underground lake that can be measured by satellite (and which shows it being fast depleted to the point of crisis) we in the Julian area don’t know exactly where our water is or how much of it is in any given place. Beneath our feet the somewhat untidy rock formations in the earth hold pools of the precious wet but exactly where or how much—well, water witches, who do exist and are really useful, can tell but most of us can’t. What we DO know is that it isn’t unlimited, that we have to go considerably further down these days than we used to in most places to find the stuff, and that some of it is replenished in decent rain years (of which we don’t have enough) but not all. And that’s where you come in, especially you newcomers. With more and more people moving into our area to escape COVID and other ills of crowded places we (a) have more people drawing on the finite amount of wet and (b) some of those people think they’re still in the city and city ways don’t work. Or, should we say, they might work but could end up being a lot more expensive and a MUCH bigger hassle. In the city you pay more if you use more water, right? Here you also may have to pay more, but a lot more. Like $40-50,000 to have a new well put in. Expensive as chicken feed has become in recent years, this is not chicken feed. Not to mention the fact that some day there just might not be another little puddle of aquifer on your property or in your water district. Or maybe there is one but not big enough to supply….you get, I hope, the picture. So out here in the Back Country we watch water use. We don’t plant lawns. We don’t plan extensive and water intensive gardens or crops. Truck farming doesn’t cut it…even orchards are pushing it nowadays given the extra demands by additional people. Swimming pools can be run without too much water wastage but pumping water out of the ground to put in ornamental ponds which evaporate—string that person up to the nearest dying oak tree. So scale down your plans for the next Julian agribusiness. Keep your flowerbeds small. Don’t let the water run while you wash dishes or brush your teeth. Keep showers short. It’s a pain, all this, but not having water is a greater pain. And welcome to living in the real world.

5 Ways To Support Kids Who Are Starting Middle And High School Remotely

Logging into Zoom from home is probably not the way your child imagined this big milestone. Here's how you can help ease their disappointment and smooth the transition. by: Leslie Crawford <> I knew the bad news was coming. Even so, when we got the email from the principal of my daughter’s new high school announcing that students won’t be attending school on campus, my heart sank. Against all reason, I had hoped that somehow students could be in school at school. Even for a few hours, outside, socially distanced, and wearing masks. No such luck. Instead, Molly will be starting high school alone in her room in front of a screen. It’s where she’s spent most of the past five months. continued on page 10

Yes, this has been a very hot summer. Hotter than most but probably not as hot as what we will be experiencing in our future. I totally believe in climate change and where I live in the mountains just north east of San Diego we probably won’t get any hurricanes and certainly won’t get any tsunamis. What we can look forward to are more years of drought, more years of heat and more wildfires. I’ve said it before and I don’t mind repeating myself when I say we need to prepare ourselves. The first thing to do is to make certain that we have enough water on hand to drink, to wash with, to flush our toilets and to keep bowls full of water for our pets and wildlife. Whether you stay in your house or evacuate, you will need water and lots of it. It’s good to have a supply of baby type wipes, if you have a power outage. If you have a flint and know how to use it, that’s great. Otherwise, do what we do and keep a supply of wood stick matches close so you know where they are. Paper matched go limp if they get damp and sometimes they just don’t work and we don’t know why. Candles are good to have during a power outage and also during an evacuation. Simple candle holders are good to have too. We have three five gallon buckets with lids that go with us when we evacuate. One bucket contains medical and cleaning supplies as a base. We have bandages, gauze, disinfectant, soap, a wash cloth and a towel. We also have some clothesline which is good for hanging wet clothes and it is also good for making a lean to tent. We have clothes pins, good quality clothes pins knowing they will come in handy for all sorts of things. Don’t forget to pack a tarp or three. You will need them for something. One of our buckets is full of non-perishable food. Non-perishable simply means it won’t spoil or rot while waiting for us to eat it. Canned food is good because it contains liquid. Potato flakes are good because with some liquid they can become mashed potatoes. Oats are good and they can be eaten raw. You don’t have to cook them. At Woodstock the Hog Farm people fed thousands of people with raw oats mixed with yoghurt, nuts and dried fruit. I don’t advise keeping yoghurt in your bucket for future use, however syrup from a can of fruit will work well mixed with raw oats. Dried fruit can be a good addition to your food bucket. I’m not sure how long nuts last, though if they are in a bag and not in a can, they can easily get full of bugs. We have raisins, dried cranberries, and can go to the Julian Cider Mill to buy a large selection of dried fruits. Our third bucket is full of emergency supplies that didn’t fit into the other two. All of the buckets can be used as seats and remember that all food needs to be rotated. Out of date food isn’t necessarily a problem unless it gets so dried up or bad that it can’t be eaten. Some medical supplies get too old too. Check your supplies at least once each year. If you have pets, put their supplies with yours. They will need food, water, kitty litter and a litter tray for cats , a piece of clothing or blanket that has your aroma on it to help your pets feel less anxious and don’t forget kennels to put small animals in. You don’t want them planting themselves under your feet while you are trying to drive through fire or smoke. I was so lucky when we evacuated from the Cedar Fire. I had two cats with me in a kennel while I literally drove through flames and heavy smoke. I was glad to following a fire engine because his large red tail lights were easy to follow when I could see nothing else besides fire and heavy smoke. It’s important to always be prepared for any emergency. We live in an area that can continue to feel drought, we live in an area that can experience a major earthquake any time, we live in an area where we can experience several feet of snow or several inches of rain in a single day. What will you do if your roof begins leaking and heavy rains are predicted for the next week? This won’t be a time to patch your roof. Keep the things you will need in case of evacuation near your front door. If you need to run out of the house, you will be glad that you kept these things where you could get to them easily. Meantime, buy more buckets. Fill one with your family photos and mementos, seal them so moisture can’t get to them. Some medications come with a small packet of silica gel. The purpose of silica gel is to soak up moisture. That’s why it can be found packed with medications, camera equipment and other items that will be damaged if they get damp. Papers are important. If they fit, put a copy of your birth certificate, driver’s license, passport, power bill to prove which address you live in, proof of insurance and any other papers that you deem important. Another bucket can be filled with Christmas ornaments and art work that your children made for you through the years. I know families that didn’t think to take these things when they evacuated from the Cedar

Virginia Mae Stadille, 89, passed away peacefully at her home in the Bankers Hill neighborhood of San Diego, CA on the evening of August 13th, 2020. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri on April 27th, 1931 to Charles and Ella Noakes. She spent much of her childhood in Erie, Kansas before moving with her family to California in 1940 after losing their family farm during the Great Depression. Virginia graduated from Grossmont High School in 1949. On July 9th, 1950 she married Jack M. Stadille. Together, they established and ran grocery stores in Jamul, Santa Ysabel, and Julian for nearly 50 years including Jack’s Grocery in Julian. A devout parishioner at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church in Julian, Virginia even participated in a church group pilgrimage to Italy in 1992. There, she visited the tomb of St. Francis in Assisi and even saw Pope John Paul II. She is most fondly remembered as the hard working, never-tiring, friendly face at her family’s grocery stores. Virginia always made a positive and lasting impression on her customers and the community for which she cared so much. Virginia was always a loving and attentive mother and grandmother – even often treating friends and neighbors as her own family. She is survived by her three children, Janice Stadille Olsen of Ramona, Donald (Linda) Stadelli of San Diego, Michael (Nancy) Stadille of San Diego, grandchildren Luke (Erin) D’Arche, Nicholas (Cristina) Stadille, and great-grandchildren Cadence D’Arche and Jackson D’Arche. Visitation Services including the reciting of the Rosary will be held on Thursday, August 27th, 2020 from 5-8pm at Bonham Bros. and Stewart Mortuary Chapel, Ramona. Funeral Mass will take place on Friday, August 28th, 2020 at 11:00am, St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church, Julian. Final interment will take place at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, San Diego. Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service is assisting the family. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the Helen Woodward Center or charity of their choice.

Fire because it blasted through at the wrong time of year. Some of us are giving away many of our possessions. We live in a high risk wildfire area and because of my health issues I’m high risk for getting the covid virus. Giving away possessions is sometimes called death cleaning. It really isn’t morbid. It just means that I’m giving my things to people while I am alive who will appreciate them and my possessions won’t end up in a dumpster. These are all things to think about. These are my thoughts. One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. — Plato

Steaks are one of the most popular types of grilled meats. Chuck steaks are a tasty alternative to more expensive steaks. While not as tender as other steaks, chuck steaks are favorably enhanced by marinating them before grilling.

Whether cooked in a skillet, broiled or grilled, chuck steaks are best when cooked for a few minutes per side, allowed to rest for 5 minutes, and served medium rare. Longer cooking times will make the meat tough. The two best types of chuck steaks to use for quick recipes are the chuck-eye steak and the shoulder top blade, also known as the flat iron steak. The chuck-eye steak is located next to the rib-eye steak. The rib-eye steak comes from the rib area of a cow, located just behind the shoulder or chuck section. The chuck eye steak is comparable in flavor to the rib eye but much less expensive. Chuck eye steaks are best when braised but are also good grilled or broiled. Chuck shoulder top blade, or flat iron steaks, are perfect for the grill. The fat that marbles it keeps it moist and infuses the steak with flavor. The flat iron steak was created by a development team at the University of Nebraska to make use of a formerly wasted cut of beef called the top blade roast. The top blade roast is taken from the shoulder of the cow and contains tough connective tissue continued on page 11

Popcorn Wagon

The smell of the popcorn draws customers to a traveling popcorn machine. This modernized wagon, which looks on the outside like it did in 1910, sold at an antiques auction for $34,000. Did you know it needs a special type of popping corn to get the best results? Popcorn wasn't a popular snack food until the 1890s,

The Julian News 7

when Charles Cretors created a steam-powered machine to roast peanuts, coffee and popcorn to sell from a wagon on the street near his Chicago candy store. He kept improving the machinery and the product, and in 1885, he started C. Cretors and Co. In 1893, he took his popcorn wagon to the Chicago Columbian Exposition to sell his new product -- popped corn. He made individual horse-drawn popcorn wagons for customers, and by 1900, he made the first electric popcorn wagon. He made more changes as the popcorn-eating public went to the movies. Cretors changed his business to make things for the war effort in the 1940s. His machines were modernized by the 1950s, but the company still made oldfashioned popcorn wagons for use and display. Today, you may find a popcorn wagon, horse-drawn or motorized, at an antiques auction. A 15-foot-long horse-drawn

Cretors 1910 wagon recently sold at a Kamelot auction in Philadelphia for $34,000. It even has a custom-made travel trailer for long trips.

Julian Meals on the Go started with concern for isolated seniors in our area. Laurel Granquist called a meeting of representatives of the community (including me) to discuss how we might organize and work together to help them. Just days before that meeting, Laurel saw a flyer for the Ramona Senior Center. It explained that they delivered meals to homebound seniors. She called and spoke with the director to see if meals could be delivered in Julian. The director came to our first meeting and together we discussed how we might recruit and coordinate volunteers to deliver meals prepared by the Senior Center to vulnerable and homebound seniors in our 92036 area. We eventually developed a partnership with Ramona Senior Center who takes care of all the financial aspects and food preparation. Their funding is primarily through grants but recipients are asked to help support the program with donations if they are able. Five dollars per meal is suggested. On May 5, 2014, we made our first deliveries to 13 recipients. The recipients must be 60 years or older and have some difficulty obtaining food and/or preparing meals for themselves. The program is run through Community United Methodist Church but is definitely a community effort. Generally, only one third to one half of our volunteers are church members. The senior center delivers the nutritious, prepared meals to the church and then volunteer drivers deliver the meals to the seniors. Deliveries are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Each delivery day the seniors receive one complete hot meal for that day and a complete frozen meal for the following day. Some of the seniors most in need also get meals for Saturday and Sunday. The farthest west we have delivered is to Wynola Estates. The farthest east is Shelter Valley and the farthest south is Harrison Park. To make deliveries for a route takes from one to two hours (round trip from church back to church) depending on the distance and number of recipients. We currently have only 8 recipients. The most we’ve served at one time was 25. Over the last 6 years, we delivered to 90 different people including our current recipients. In many cases, we saw improvement in their health and well-being after they started receiving meals. The volunteers go through food-handlers instruction and an orientation to our program that takes about 90 minutes total. Volunteers sign up for the days and routes that they prefer. They can deliver as frequently as once a week or a couple times a month or substitute as needed. It is very satisfying work. The seniors are always glad to see us and appreciative of our care for them. If you would like to volunteer, please call the church (760-765-0114) and leave a message. We were concerned about how this program would continue when the pandemic began. We instituted new policies for increased sanitizing and decreased contact. We are proud of the fact that none of our seniors or volunteers have caught COVID. We would be happy to serve more seniors. Word of mouth is the best way to promote this program. Many people are reluctant to ask a stranger to come to their home but are more willing if someone they trust recommends it. If you know a senior who could benefit from this meal delivery program, have them call Ramona Senior Center directly to complete an application over the phone.

Upcoming National Museum To Honor All Soldiers (NAPSI)—If you or someone you know is a soldier, Army veteran, Army family member or other proud military supporter, you can become a permanent part of history at the National Museum of the United States Army. An historic project led by the Army Historical Foundation and the U.S. Army, the Museum is going up at Fort Belvoir, Va., just south of Washington, D.C.    “We are proud to build a national museum that will tell the history of the Army—and

our nation—through the eyes of American soldiers,” said Foundation President U.S. Army Retired Lt. Gen. Roger Schultz. “The timeline for opening the Museum was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we promise it will be worth the wait.” To be included in the Museum’s story, soldiers and Army veterans can submit their stories of service in the Registry of the American Soldier, which will be one of the largest collections of American Soldier profiles ever assembled. Stories can also be submitted on a veteran’s behalf, at no cost. The Foundation currently features the Registry on its website and the collection will be made available on kiosks in the Museum. Stories can be submitted at www.armyhistory. org/the-registries/.  Members of the Army

community can also be a permanent part of the Museum by ordering a customized commemorative brick to be laid on the grounds of the Museum. More than 8,000 bricks have already been installed, honoring soldiers from all 50 states. Among the bricks are those for such well-known Army veterans as Senator Bob Dole and General Eric Shinseki. Individuals and organizations can order bricks at To stay up to date on the project, including announcements about opening day, visit www.

Two of the world’s most famous gold rushes were the “California gold rush” in the late 1840s and the “Klondike gold rush” in northwest Canada in the late 1890s. Three hundred thousand people traveled to “gold country,” many by sea. To get to the Klondike region, people traveled through ice and snow. Only 30,000 of the 100,000 who tried to make the trip were able to finish it. Places for prospectors to gather and buy or sell supplies sprang up so quickly that they were called boom towns. Some of the boom towns of California became cities that still thrive today, but the boomtowns of the Klondike gold rush were short-lived, since gold was found in places that were easier and safer to reach.

Treasure hunting is exciting! It can be a formal process, as Digging, Diving, Discovering when archaeologists 1 carefully dig for p i rate historical items. It can be life-changing – as it was for people who rushed across the country to California in the 1800s to 5 search for gold and stake their claims. It may involve people hunting for something of value – or just to have some fun!

California Commentary

A Growing Opposition To Raising Taxes In California Tax and bond proposals did not fare very well in the election just last March. For the first time since the 1990’s, voters rejected a statewide school bond, ironically designated as Proposition 13. Local bond and tax measures also had rough sledding, particularly those requiring a two-thirds vote. Prior to that, in June of 2019, registered voters residing in the Los Angeles Unified School District rejected a proposed parcel tax heavily supported by the local labor groups and Mayor Eric Garcetti. The measure, Measure EE, which needed a two-thirds vote for passage, didn’t even secure a simple majority. What is going on here? Last year, this column coined the term “taxuration” which is a phenomenon when taxpayers are so saturated with new taxhike proposals that they start to rebel. According to a poll released at that time by the Public Policy Institute of California, a majority of likely voters in the state aren’t very happy with the tax burdens they are forced to pay. Most Californians say the state’s tax system is unfair, a reversal from the same question asked in March 2017. The results of that poll are consistent with what is happening in 2020, at least so far. But the true test will be in November as voters confront the split-roll measure — Proposition 15 — that would be the biggest property tax hike proposal in the history of California. The November election has too many variables to make any sort of rational prediction: The continuing economic fallout from the pandemic, voter turnout in a presidential election year and the impact of an all-mail election to name a few. But resistance to tax hikes is increasing, not waning. Californians still want good schools and other public services that government is supposed to deliver, but they continue to perceive, with ample justification, that they are not getting the services for which

they are paying. Many are angry at the arrogance and overreach of public-sector unions that are making ridiculous demands for everything including, of course, more money at a time when private-sector workers are struggling. In one respect, this renewed resistance to higher taxes is counterintuitive. This is no longer the California of Ronald Reagan, Howard Jarvis or George Deukmejian. Moreover, Democrats in the legislature, with more than a two-thirds supermajority in both houses, should be able to jam through every tax hike they want. However, as the public’s resistance to tax hikes has grown, there has been less clarity among legislators concerning who can be counted on to oppose higher taxes. In decades past, Republicans were reliable opponents of tax hikes while Democrats generally favored them. That may still be true most of the time, but some Republicans have supported big tax hikes while several Democrats have defied convention and fought against them. In fact, several Democrats have received decent grades from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association report card and one even received a perfect score. On the flip side, several Republicans backed Assembly Constitutional Amendment 11, which put Proposition 19 on the ballot. That affront to taxpayers is a billion-dollar property tax hike, raising taxes by removing the ability of parents and grandparents to give property to their kids without triggering reassessment. It is, in essence, a massive estate tax. For voters, all this means is that party affiliation is becoming less important when it comes to issues involving taxation, debt and fiscal responsibility. Reliance on individuals and advocacy organizations with proven track records is a better option. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

• A Florida waitress was promised a new Toyota after winning a sales contest at her restaurant, but was given a toy Yoda, a "Star Wars" doll, instead. She sued the company, and received more than enough to buy herself a new Toyota. • Fear of dolls is called "pediophobia." • Alchemist Hennig Brand is thought to have used upwards of 1,500 gallons of human urine in his quest to make gold. After he evaporated, boiled and distilled it multiple times, it started to glow in the dark and burst into flames. He had instead discovered the element phosphorus. • "Phantom Vibration Syndrome" is the name for when someone thinks their phone is vibrating, but it isn't. • Cats have more than 100 vocal sounds, while dogs only have about 10. • Astronaut John Young caused a small scandal in 1965 when he smuggled a corned beef sandwich aboard Gemini 3. When he took it out in zero gravity and tried to eat it, it broke up, sending crumbs flying around the cabin. No harm was done, but the incident sparked a safety review by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations and a statement from NASA assuring that steps had been taken "to prevent recurrence of corned beef sandwiches in future flights." • Jim Carrey's make-up routine for "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was so intense and his costume was so uncomfortable that he underwent training from the CIA's torture experts! • Take a good look at Disney princesses and you'll notice that they're all essentially attired in typical princess garb of gown, tiara, etc. But here's a small difference you might not have picked up on -- some wear gloves, and some don't.

This view shows off Helsinki's underground water works. The Finnish capital is a world leader in moving people and their infrastructure below the surface where they can live more energy-efficient lifestyles. Credit: Jordi Cueto-Felgueroso Arocha, FlickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: If we lived in underground buildings (and cities), would it be better for the environment overall? -- Marty M., Hoboken, NJ It’s certainly true that moving more of our infrastructure, let alone work and live space, underground would relieve some of the pressure that our conventional above-ground development and habitation puts on the environment. While building below the surface presents its own set of challenges, underground spaces are less susceptible to external influences and their overall impact (including carbon emissions) tends to be less than the equivalent amount of space above ground. Indeed, given the environmental problems we’re experiencing, moving more below the surface does indeed have the potential to make things safer, healthier and more sustainable for all of us. In and of themselves, underground buildings have a built-in advantage in regard to energy usage for heating/cooling, given their typically more constant temperature, humidity, heat insulation, shading and airtightness. Furthermore, underground buildings are much less affected by wind, rain, frost, snow, sun radiation or other external conditions. At the same time, the temperature fluctuation range of underground space is small, especially as compared to the “hot-and-cold load” in above-ground buildings. In short, underground buildings use only a fraction of the energy required by conventional buildings to keep the interior environment comfortable, with most of the energy consumption concentrated instead on less powerintensive lighting and ventilation systems. Beyond being better for the planet in some ways as compared to above-ground buildings, just having some underground buildings in the mix—even below regular cities—could yield vast benefits. “Underground solutions can solve or help improve multiple of the problems that urban developments face: traffic congestion; environmental problems; lack of (green) space; need for protection against disasters; lack of infrastructure for food, energy, water and sanitation,” reports Dutch researcher Wout Broere. “Placement of infrastructure and other facilities underground presents an opportunity for realizing new functions in urban areas without destroying heritages or negatively impacting the surface environment, and at the same time brings opportunities for long-term improvements in the environmental impact of cities and more efficient use of space and resources,” adds Broere. Many cities around the world—from Helsinki to Moscow to Montreal to Beijing—are developing underground space to alleviate population and environmental pressures. Helsinki, for instance, has adopted a strategic ‘Underground City Plan’ which calls for the construction of some 200 more underground buildings there to accompany the city’s existing subterranean swimming complex, shopping area, and hockey rink. Meanwhile, Russian developers are converting a defunct 550-meter-deep mine shaft in Eastern Siberia into an eco-friendly underground city under a huge glass dome. The ambitious project— replete with vertical farms, forests and recreation areas in addition to climate controlled underground offices and housing—promises to eventually accommodate 100,000 residents. While many of us shudder at the thought of living a subterranean lifestyle, at least making the option available to those who choose it willingly could be a big win for the environment.

Support Kids Who Are Starting Remotely continued from page 5

If I am feeling this down about the news, I can only imagine what this feels like for her. Starting middle and high school are rites of passage fraught with anticipation and anxiety. But due to the pandemic, incoming 6th and 9th graders are starting at a new school without the in-person experiences — like walking the halls for the first time and introducing themselves to classmates — that foster lasting connection and community. Instead, they are living most of their lives online at a time when young adults should be out in the world socializing and developing their identities. “Now I’m not even nervous about starting high school,” Molly said when she learned the news. “I’m just sad.” Given how grateful I am that my family is healthy and safe, am I blowing this out of proportion? No, says Jennifer Winward, a lecturer in the Psychology department at the University of California San Diego, who is currently helping parents and “quaranteens” navigate this strange new world of isolated education. “Parent’s concerns for these age groups are not overblown. These entering freshmen won’t have the same connections to teachers, won’t get the same academic and emotional support, and won’t have the same opportunities to build friend groups.” But with the right encouragement and support, incoming 6th and 9th graders can find ways to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. Here’s what experts say you can do to help. Acknowledge your child’s reality Your child is doing something that no other tweens or teens of their generation (or yours) have had to do: learn and socialize and find community in a virtual setting during a pandemic. “Give them props for their perseverance, hard work, and inventive thinking in school and out,” says psychologist John Duffy, author of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety. And no matter what, recognize that what they are doing is hard. This could mean simply saying, “You’re right. This is difficult. I want you to be able to talk openly about how you are feeling.” Here’s a tip: Don’t do what I did. Don’t remind your child that Anne Frank had it much worse. Comparing suffering never does the trick, especially with teens! Foster a sense of normalcy by creating some routines Toni Setteducato, dean of students at Alta Vista Middle School in San Francisco, says she’s observed that for those students whose parents are able to maintain some sense of normalcy and a schedule at home, kids feel more stabilized and don’t feel like, ‘Everything has turned upside down in my

world.’” This might look like keeping regular bedtime and wake-up times (even on days they don’t have to log in to a class at 8:30 am), getting dressed (at least their top half), sitting down to regular meals, and getting regular exercise. These routines will do wonders for your tween or teen, helping them to focus when they are in school and switch gears when they are not.

Make sure there’s a social outlet Peers play an essential role in tweens’ and teens’ growing independence. Alta Vista Middle School’s Setteducato, says that finding ways to build a peer group for new 6th and 9th graders is vital. “They are all entering a brand-new community where they won’t have physical contact,” so finding creative ways to make friends will help your

tween or teen feel “they aren’t on an island alone.” Duffy recommends encouraging (even gently pushing) kids to engage in a school activity outside of academics. Some schools are proactively contacting students about which clubs are going virtual and which activities are available — in person (socially distanced) or online. But if they continued on page 12

what Susan B. Anthony wants them to consider. Sojourner Truth is gesturing with her hands for emphasis, and may have just thumped table to make her point. Or she might be merely resting her left hand between gestures. Stanton is about to dip her pen and write. Is she taking down what Truth is saying? Has she just been interrupted in mid-thought? Anthony is handing a document to Stanton. Has she just read it out loud, as friends and collaborators did for Truth? Like the women I’m portraying, my work is meant to raise questions and to provoke thought. My hope is that all people, especially girls and boys, will be inspired by this scene of women of different races, different religious backgrounds and different economic status working together to change the world.

and are not fixed in a particular moment. Sculptural portraits can do this well because they are made as composites, formed from many impressions, and because they are designed to be seen from many angles at different times of day in changing light. I never copy a photograph but photographs inspire me to use my imagination to tell a more encompassing story. My portraits of these women are complex, showing their attention to and respect for each other and, through their body language and subtle aspects of their facial expressions, some of the tensions among them. Their gestures are significant but not definitive. My intention is that viewers will decide for themselves what Sojourner Truth is saying and what Elizabeth Cady Stanton is thinking and

and muscle. By cutting the roast into a thin, uniform, rectangularshaped steak, the tough tissue was removed. The shape of the steak looks like the bottom of an iron, hence the name, flat iron. This recipe for Garlic Steak Marinade also makes a delicious salad dressing! Make a double batch, place it in an airtight container and refrigerate it for up to month. Shake the container to combine the ingredients before using. GRILLED FLAT IRON STEAKS WITH GARLIC MARINADE Don’t add salt when making this marinade. Sprinkle the steaks with a teaspoon of salt right before placing them on the grill. If using the marinade as a salad dressing, sprinkle the salt on the salad greens first then add the marinade. Makes approximately 2 1/4 cups. 6 (1/2-pound each) flat iron or chuck eye steaks 1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon black pepper 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1/2 tablespoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1. Place the steaks in a shallow baking dish. Using a mediumsized bowl, stir together the oil, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and red pepper flakes until well-combined. 2. Pour all but about a 1/4 cup of the marinade over the steaks. Reserve the marinade in the bowl for later use and set it aside. Turn the steaks in the pan to coat on both sides. Cover the dish with plastic wrap. Let the steaks marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

3. Heat the grill to mediumhigh heat. Oil the grill grate with a paper-towel dipped in vegetable oil to clean the grill and keep the steaks from sticking. Remove steaks from dish. Aggressively sprinkle both sides of the steak with salt to create a flavorful crust. 4. Place steaks on the cooler part of the grill, over medium heat. Cook steaks for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, brushing steaks often with the reserved marinade. 5. After the steaks have cooked on both sides, remove them from the heat and cover with a piece of foil to keep them warm. The steaks will stay warm and continue to cook. Allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes before slicing to retain the juices and keep it tender and moist. Serve immediately. *** 760-758-2514

could cause some friction among your colleagues. But once again, that logical mind of yours comes to the rescue. And the sooner it does, the better! SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) There might still be some heated temper flare-ups out there. But your sensible self should advise you to stay out of these situations until things cool down and calm is restored. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Changing your mind could be the right thing to do if you can't resolve your doubts. You might want to discuss the matter with someone whose advice you trust. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but it's your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An educational opportunity could lead to something other than what you had planned. But keep an open mind, and before you decide to turn it down, check it out. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The Piscean wit and wisdom helps you work through a situation that might have been accidentally or even deliberately obscured. What you unravel could prove to be very revealing. BORN THIS WEEK: Loyalty is important to you. You demand it, but you also give it generously and lovingly.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A previous misunderstanding continues to taint the atmosphere to some extent in the early part of the week. But cooler heads prevail, and the situation eases by week's end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While the artistic aspect of the Divine Bovine is well-served this week, that practical side is also getting the sort of recognition that could lead to a new and well-deserved opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With home-related matters taking on more importance this week, now could be the time to make some long-deferred purchases. But shop carefully for the best quality at the best price. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations. While that family problem might still rankle, it should be easing thanks to your efforts to calm the waters. Also, a workplace situation seems to be moving in your favor. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat's energy levels should be rather high these days, and you might do well to tackle any tasks that still need doing. This will clear the way for those upcoming projects. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone's criticism might not be as negative as you perceive. Actually, it could be helpful. Discuss the matter with your critic, and you both could learn something valuable. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business matter

Support Kids Who Are Starting Remotely continued from page 10

aren’t, your child may need your support in reaching out to the school. This may also be a time for your child to create an online group or club of their own — be it around giving back to the community, gaming, athletics, or any shared interest. Finding peers with whom they share something in common will help them cement a social base that will continue when they return to school in person. (Read more about how to help your child socialize in the time of social distancing.) If you’ve ever urged your child to do an extracurricular activity, it will come as no surprise that many children will push back. In fact, says Duffy, it’s almost guaranteed that “about 90 percent of them will,” he says with a laugh. “They might even tell you, ‘Leave me alone! My life sucks.’ At this point, it’s appropriate for a parent to say, ‘Okay, but it’s not good for you to just be in your room texting friends. You can be mad at me and tell me to leave you alone, but in the end I’m going to insist on some activity.’” Some schools are even allowing some sports to meet and train, albeit with the requisite social distancing and masks. Not only does this get kids outdoors and away from screens, it also gives them a chance to socialize with other students. Lean into online learning Freshmen should treat their virtual classroom like they would a real one, Winward says. “Given the potentially lessclose relationship with teachers, freshmen really need to engage in this virtual environment. Teachers will recognize those kids who are engaged and celebrate it. Students can demonstrate this by being on time to class, coming prepared with informed questions, staying on top of assignments, and showing that they are paying attention.” For some kids, distance learning last spring wasn’t as effective as it could have been. If your child is feeling behind, you can encourage them to catch up this fall. Winward says math tends to be the biggest academic challenge. “If you ask most kids what subject they’re worried about, usually it’s math.” While this will mean even more time

online, kids can spend even a few minutes a day reinforcing math basics from the previous year to help get them to where they feel they’re on solid footing. Khan Academy, which has offers hundreds of free math courses, is a viable option. Asking their math teacher for some basic review work to help them succeed this year is another great idea, and can help the teacher get to know your child a bit better. Pleasure reading is also essential. While it can be a hard sell to get your child to “sit down and read a book” when TikTok and Instagram beckon, Winward says what’s important is that your child read something, no matter what it is: Graphic novels, a book on fashion, whatever your child is passionate about. Reading news and commentary online is great, but if your child is easily distractible (and keeps notifications on and a million tabs open), you may want to mandate some non-screen reading time, too. (Here are some of GreatSchools’ recommended reading lists for 6th graders and 9th graders.) Get outside of themselves Alta Vista Middle School’s Setteducato says that the best antidote for doing well during these difficult times is to also help your child help others. She asks students, “What are things outside of the box that you can do with your time, great things that can come out of this moment?” Duffy explains that helping your child shift focus (without guilt or shame) outside themselves and helping others can be transformative so it’s not “just about this awful moment, the pandemic.” He has seen many tweens and teens shake themselves out of their inertia and feelings of helplessness by helping others. “I saw kids who were really hurting, but when BLM came to the fore, they had something to rally for and were invigorated and inspired. A girl I work with started putting on virtual princess parties to raise money for the hospital where her friend passed away. When she talks about this project, she is in another space completely.” Any final words of advice from the expert, an actual high school freshman? Even if they are sad about it, “Let them have their emotions,” says Molly. “Your kids don’t need to be happy 24/7. Just letting them know you are there for them is a lot.”
